I remember the ATP website from a few years ago before it was remade had a section with a list of the greatest champions where we had a small text describing their achievements for each player. Does anyone remember that too?

I can't seem to find this on the new website. Does anyone know where to find that information?

Thx.
Not sure but you still can get it on the individual player page(even the retired one)here Borg http://www.atpworldtour.com/Tennis/P...jorn-Borg.aspx (scroll down)

What is the actual definition of a "show court"?
I thought I knew, but am confused now.

Let us take the USO for example.

I initially thought that there were four show courts, as confirmed by this:
Quote:
How many total courts are there on the grounds of the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center?
There are a total of 22 courts on the grounds of the USTA Billie Jean National Tennis Center. Four "show courts" (Arthur Ashe, Louis Armstrong, Grandstand and Court 17), 13 field courts and 5 practice courts.
http://usta.usopen.org/US-Open/tickets_faq/#4683


But, here they mention that there are six(They also include Court 11 and 13 here)
Quote:
Watch more than 200 US Open matches live as they happen for free with US Open Live and find your favorite star on one of six show courts including Arthur Ashe Stadium, Louis Armstrong Stadium and the Grandstand. US Open Live is only available in the United States and its territories.
http://www.usopen.org/en_US/interactive/video/live.html


Both are from the USO 2012 site.

I think there are 2 different definitions, at least for me, because I also had problems with that term and as I see now I was/am not the only one.

One definition is when "show court" is used as a synonym to "televised (TV) courts". I think that's the more common definition because I assume that if somebody wants to know how many show courts there are, then he/she wants to know how many courts are provided with TV cameras.

The other definition is a bit difficult and also a bit inprecise. Often, especially on the tournament websites etc., show court is used when they talk about the bigger courts with stands and so on. Or let's say, then they mean the courts "which differ from the remaining courts" or are "unique". As you could see from the US Open example in the first quote, they only have 4 show courts. And those 4 look completely different to each other and the remaining courts (although Grandstand and LA don't look that different imo). And then when you watch a match from court 11 or 13, you would think this court exists like 10 times on site, just with another name/number.

I hope I could help and my description wasn't that bad although my written English is not the best there is and I'm still learning English at school.

Thanks. It did help. Repped.

As for the second definition, I always used to think(not sure why) that a show court is one which has "proper" seating on all four sides. AFAIK, Court 11 and 13 for the USO (in the BJKNTC) have stands only on three sides, and thus are not show courts in this definition.

Do you have to hit the ball with the racket? If a player inadvertently hits the ball with his head, let's say Player A attempts a passing shot and Player B was really close to the net, it hits Player B's head and it lands in Player A's court and lands in – does Player B win or lose the point?
